No-one could accuse Leicester City striker Matty Fryatt of lacking ambition. He so enjoys his partnership with Iain Hume that he's hoping they can have the "same sort of impact as Andy Cole and Dwight York" at Manchester United.
In 1998/99 Cole/York's 53 goals made them the most lethal partnership in Europe and helped United to the Treble.
Now Fryatt has told the Official Leicester City website: 'They were the best. They knew each other inside out.'
And of playing with Hume he said 'It is probably the most enjoyable partnership I've been involved with as a footballer.
'You can play with someone for two seasons and still not know what they are thinking or doing. Iain and myself have just clicked and long may it continue.'
The partnership has reaped seven goals in nine games but Fryatt's own goals have dried up and he's not scored in the last five.
That said, both have made excellent personal contributions and their task might be easier now with winger Andy Welsh on the scene.
Welsh is an obviously direct and creative player who, unlike most people who've played on the wing for City this season, appears able to pick out a telling pass.
The loanee from Sunderland will be most remembered for missing an open goal in the last seconds of Saturday's match with Hull but he was a constant threat to the visitors in the 20 minutes he was on.
With Sunderland able to recall him any time after 28 days though, one wonders what his position will be now that Mick McCarthy has been sacked as manager there.
